So you ever go out of town and stop in some local dive for dinner and there's a random dude over in the corner eating and paying no mind to the fact that out-of-town visitors are trying his favorite dive for the first time?  Completely oblivious to the world around him, caught up in his meal, like any other weekly visit.

Next time you go to your favorite place for a bite to eat, consider that you're that guy.  You're that guy.  At any given point in your meal, the complete stranger that comes through the door may have just traveled a great distance and this place is where they chose to eat.  Your place.  Your favorite watering hole.  You are the random, nameless stranger.

All the teenage girls at the time listened to him using this device that sounds like you're barfing into a vacuum cleaner, and thought he was saying "I want to spaaaaank you!"  Probably part of the reason it's one of the top selling live albums of all time.

I can always tell what my employees have been looking up on the computer based on the ads that pop up.

Looks like someone is looking at engagement rings.

And someone else has been looking up VR headsets.
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

Or the one person is looking to get married to a VR simulation. The perfect marriage.

Here's a very random thought: I find somehow "annoying" how the expression "to sleep with" is always used as a global and general metaphor for the two-headed monster.

I mean, on one hand I perfectly understand how it's less gross to say "to sleep with" rather than saying "having sex" or, as prude people say, "the F word",  but I've seen countless situations where "X slept with Y" has been used even though the couple literally did not consumate the act in bed at all  :D

I get that the most common situation is two people consumating it in bed at one's place and then the other partner stays the night... but this translated into that generic "sleeping with" that is used when there are no beds or sleeping involved  ;D

Also in Italy we have the same expression, the literal translation would be "to go to bed with", I would feel very weird in saying I went to bed with someone if all I did was a quickie in a car or whatever other situation.

When I hear or read of something happening "15 years ago", I still imagine that to be the early-to-mid 90s. 15 years ago was actually 2002. Time flies...

First time I got to 2nd base.
I was 16, and we were at a Jo Dee Messina concert.

That was nearly 10 years ago to the day.

Natasha's voice is sexy.

Someone drove by blasting the song... and it will always be associated with this scene for me.

Reading random articles about food as led me to one conclusion: my life will not be complete until I visit Italy. As an Italian-American, I've already been raised to love Italian food and it is indeed my favorite style of cuisine, but to have all of these types of food, especially Bolognese sauce, in the country where they originated is something that I must experience before I die.

Random thought:

Hypothetically, if you took all the racist people in the world & put them all in one country with no-one else there & no way for any of them to escape, does the phrase "racist people are bad" become contradictory?
